are you using a genuine XP disk? is it for the same version of windows that you've got installed?

if you've just got a couple of bugs try an sfc scann

Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

SFC - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system..

The biggest bug is that I can not do a repair.....It's acting like a dual boot partion, but it isn't.
